During winter I love preparing soups particularly when I can cook with beautiful and fresh ingredients like the purle cauliflower I bought this Saturday at the local market.
This cauliflower variety is similar to the normal cauliflower in appearance, although white cauliflower is in the same family as cabbage, the purple cauliflower is actually in the same family as broccoli, the brassica family. The purple cauliflower grows outward and produces bunches of florets, like broccoli. It’s rich in carotenoids and anthocyanins that hold potential health benefits, including the ability to help stabilize capillary walls. In addition purple cauliflower contains important vitamins and minerals for overall health: in 100 g of purple cauliflower, you receive over 100 percent of the recommended daily values of vitamin C. So its vibrant purple color not only adds beauty but nutrition as well!
Today I used it for a easy but delicious soup, here’s the recipe:
